12th International Evaluation Conference 21-22 June 2017 in Wrocław, Poland

The 12th International Evaluation Conference “Evaluation that matters. Ways to improve public policies”

21-22 June 2017 

Mercure Hotel at plac Dominikański, Wrocław, Poland.

Hosted by the Ministry of Economic Development and Polish Agency for Enterprise Development 


The history of the conference dates back to 2005.  The mission has remained the same, to develop evidence, skills and knowledge across Europe to obtain the best possible results.


The aim of the conference is to present the results of public policies in the European Union. The evidence provided by the evaluation study not only illustrates the results of the actions taken, but also explains the socio-economic mechanisms, opportunities and barriers of the countries concerned.

The conference is a forum for increasing knowledge and skills, exchanging experience and research results. Thanks to this event, specialists involved in the evaluation process at various stages have the opportunity to meet, develop contacts and understand different points of view. We are confident that this will have a significant impact on the preparation of high-quality evaluation research. By enhancing the quality of research and releasing the potential of institutions involved in the evaluation process, we contribute to better policy.

During this year’s event we will focus on broadly defined systems of evaluation encompassing both evaluation culture and evaluation methodology. Participants will be able to learn from four different panels:

(1) Causal effects in evaluation,

(2) Evaluation culture across the world,

(3) Evaluation of development programmes,

(4) Application of serious games in evaluation.
